Supreme Court Rules CDC Has Exceeded its Authority with Eviction Moratorium – Eviction Moratorium Held Invalid

August 27, 2021

On September 4, 2020, the CDC issued an order seeking to halt evictions under a statute that appeared to be limited in scope.  Stern & Eisenberg sent the attached announcement setting forth our position that the order was beyond the authority of the CDC.  The efforts of the CDC to extend this inappropriate continuation of authority has finally been put to an end by the Supreme Court.

On Thursday, the Alabama Association of Realtors successfully challenged the CDC Moratoriums whereby the Supreme Court held that the CDC’s action were well beyond the scope of the CDC’s authority.  The CDC’s new moratorium has been held unlawful and is now suspended.  We are glad that the Highest Court has taken decisive action to put an end to the overreach by the CDC.

Attached you will find the Supreme Court’s decision.
